Majors & Minors

English

Major, minor

Degree: Bachelor of Arts

Great literature engages the mind and the heart in search of answers to some of life's toughest questions. Who am I, and what has shaped me? What gives life meaning? What is love? Justice? Evil? Literature confronts and expresses the most fundamental quandary of all: what it means to be human.

As an English major at Union, you will study how great authors, from Keats to Maxine Hong Kingston, have wrestled with such questions. You will tackle a broad range of topics, including historical, cultural, gender and author studies.
